Reframing Disability as Competency: Unpacking Everyday Technology Practices of People with Visual Impairments (2020)
Conference Proceeding
Reyes-Cruz, G., Fischer, J., & Reeves, S. (2020). Reframing Disability as Competency: Unpacking Everyday Technology Practices of People with Visual Impairments. In CHI '20: Proceedings of the 2020 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems. https://doi.org/10.1145/3313831.3376767

More than a billion people in the world live with some form of visual impairment, and a wide variety of technologies are now routinely used by them in the course of 'getting on' in everyday life. However, little is known about the ways in which assis... Read More about Reframing Disability as Competency: Unpacking Everyday Technology Practices of People with Visual Impairments.

Progressivity for voice interface design (2019)
Conference Proceeding
Fischer, J. E., Reeves, S., Porcheron, M., & Sikveland, R. O. (2019). Progressivity for voice interface design. In CUI '19: Proceedings of the 1st International Conference on Conversational User Interfaceshttps://doi.org/10.1145/3342775.3342788

Drawing from Conversation Analysis (CA), we examine how the orientation towards progressivity in talk--keeping things moving--might help us better understand and design for voice interactions. We introduce progressivity by surveying its explication i... Read More about Progressivity for voice interface design.

Experimental Studies of a Pulse Pressurisation Technique for Measuring Building Airtightness (2019)
Journal Article
Zheng, X., Zu, Y., Cooper, E., Gillott, M., Tetlow, D., Riffat, S., & Wood, C. (2019). Experimental Studies of a Pulse Pressurisation Technique for Measuring Building Airtightness. Future Cities and Environment, 5(1), 1-17. https://doi.org/10.5334/fce.66

A pulse pressurisation technique is developed and utilised for determining building leakage at low pressure, based on a "quasi-steady pulse" concept. The underlying principle of the technique is to subject the building envelope to a known volume chan...

Monitoring the Different Stages of Industrial Cleaning using Ultrasonic Sensors (2019)
Presentation / Conference
Watson, N. J., Escrig Escrig, J., Woolley, E., Rangappa, S., & Simeone, A. (2019, May). Monitoring the Different Stages of Industrial Cleaning using Ultrasonic Sensors. Paper presented at 7th International Symposium on Sensor Science

Clean-in-Place (CIP) technologies use a combination of time, temperature, chemicals and mechanical force (caused by flowing water) to clean processing equipment in the food and drink, pharmaceutical and fast moving consumer goods sectors. One of the... Read More about Monitoring the Different Stages of Industrial Cleaning using Ultrasonic Sensors.

Tracking the Consumption of Home Essentials (2019)
Conference Proceeding
Fuentes, C., Porcheron, M., Fischer, J. E., Costanza, E., Malik, O., & Ramchurn, S. D. (2019). Tracking the Consumption of Home Essentials. In CHI '19: Proceedings of the 2019 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systemshttps://doi.org/10.1145/3290605.3300869

Predictions of people's behaviour increasingly drive interactions with a new generation of IoT services designed to support everyday life in the home, from shopping to heating. Based on the premise that such automation is difficult due to the conting... Read More about Tracking the Consumption of Home Essentials.

New Directions for the IoT: Automate, Share, Build, and Care (2019)
Conference Proceeding
Fuentes, C., Porcheron, M., Fischer, J. E., Costanza, E., Verdezoto, N., Herskovic, V., …Takayama, L. (2019). New Directions for the IoT: Automate, Share, Build, and Care. In Proceedings of the 2019 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systemsdoi:10.1145/3290607.3299000

As the IoT is taking hold in the home, in healthcare, factories, and industry, new challenges and approaches arise for HCI research and design. For example, HCI is exploring agency delegation and automation to support the user in managing the deluge... Read More about New Directions for the IoT: Automate, Share, Build, and Care.

Via sensors carried by people and sensors embedded in the environment, personal data is being processed to try to understand activity patterns and people{\textquoteright}s internal states in the context of human-building interaction. This data is use... Read More about Adaptive Architecture and Personal Data.

Deployment of a distributed multi-agent architecture for transformable assembly (2018)
Conference Proceeding
Chaplin, J. C., & Ratchev, S. (2018). Deployment of a distributed multi-agent architecture for transformable assembly. In Precision assembly in the digital age. , (15-28). https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-030-05931-6_2

Industry 4.0 represents a new philosophy in manufacturing systems, based on networked, intelligent, and cooperative resources. This revolution is necessary to make the cost-effective production of batch-size-of-one customised items in high-value manu...
